Chapters of Gold: Meditations on the Life of Our Lady
Chapters of Gold is a book of meditations on the life of Our Lady for today's busy people. The short chapters are based on an episode in the life of Our Lady: the Annunciation, the Birth of Christ, the Finding of Christ in the Temple right through to the witness to the Resurrection of Christ. Each chapter consists of a short narrative and meditation and is illustrated with beautiful four colour plates based on the mosaics from the Lady Chapel at Westminster Cathedral., London, UK. These have been specially photographed for this book.At the end of the book, the author has gathered a collections of prayers and devotions to Our Lady, drawing from all Christian traditions. Devotion to Our Lady in the Eastern Orthodox tradition is every bit as strong as in the Roman Catholic Church (maybe even stronger) and Our Lady plays a growing part in the devotional lives of Anglicans. This is a book for people of all Christian traditions.

Those who recite the story of the Annunciation to Mary and the birth of Jesus during the holiday season will be enriched by seeing it depicted in vibrant, colorful works of art. In this small gift book, Billington and Mankowitz capture the story of Mary's life as told in mosaic, all taken from a 20th-century frieze in the Lady Chapel of Westminster Cathedral in London. The mosaics appear in chronological order, beginning with the betrothal of Mary's parents and ending with her "dormition" (death) and Saint Luke weaving her story into his gospel. Along the way are familiar scenes mentioned in the Bible (the Nativity, the flight to Egypt, the wedding at Cana, the crucifixion) and others that are attested in tradition or the Apocrypha (the risen Jesus appears to Mary, an angel predicts Mary's death). The full-color images are gorgeous and their accompanying quotations--from the likes of Gerard Manley Hopkins and T.S. Eliot, as well as the Gospels--are perceptive. This is a lovely gift for Anglicans and Catholics, as well as art lovers of all stripes.
